10 Reasons For

Optoma Projectors Have Good Reviews

We checked the reviews from users and experts of hundreds of multimedia projectors to determine an average rating for each multimedia projector manufacturer. On average projectors from Optoma have good reviews from experts and owners.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Optoma EH503 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the EH503 do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Supports Full HD Projection

The Optoma EH503 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the EH503 do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available which you might want to look at including the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector ($499.00) which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma EH503 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other data projectors that were launched more than two years ago also have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Optoma EH503 is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. Across all projectors of this spec and age the worst resolution is XGA (1024x768) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Optoma EH503 is 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). That's over six times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). This multimedia projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the EH503 the best resolution is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Optoma EH503 is a three VGA (D-Sub) port projector. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the EH503 have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Lamp Power

The lamp power of 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than two years range from 170W to 4,000W, and the average lamp power is 320W. At 370 Watts, the Optoma EH503 has a very big lamp power compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the EH503.

Chart Edit

Two Audio in Ports

Most projectors of a similar age and spec to the EH503 have between one and two audio in ports, including the Optoma EH503 which has two audio in ports.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors of a similar spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors that have been around for more than two years do not support WiFi connectivity. The Optoma EH503 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this multimedia projector and we think the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Very Short Lamp Service Life

With a lamp service life of only 1,500 hour, the Optoma EH503 has one of the shorter lamp service lives amongst 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. Multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the EH503 have lamp service lives of between 200h and 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Heavy

Similar spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago have weights of between 370g and 23kg, and the average weight is 6.4kg. With a weight of 8.6 kilograms, the Optoma EH503 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type.

3 Other reasons to consider the Optoma EH503

Released Over Two Years Ago

This multimedia projector was released over two years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

At 5,200 ANSI lumens, the Optoma EH503 has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar type and age to the EH503.

Alternative 5,200 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available which you might also want to consider include the Sony VPL-FH36 ($3,899.95) which has better reviews.

Average Noise Level

At 37 decibels, the Optoma EH503 has a fairly average noise level compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the EH503.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might also want to look at the Optoma W505 (37dB), the Hitachi CP-EW300 (37dB), or the Sony VPLFH31 ($3,029.95) (37dB).
